Akirno saw a picture of Reese Witherspoon in a magazine some time back. Aleika told me he has been wanting to come over to my place ever since.
Aleika gave the phone to him so we could say hi.
– Hello Stephanie…
– Hello Akirno!
– …I want to go to your house!
– Well, I’d love to have you come to my house! 😀
I won’t even try to tell you how much this snippet of conversation means for me — both in terms of how far Akirno has come, and now much he means to me. I was last in England six months ago, and I barely saw him an hour or so then. His mom and I are going to plan their visit pretty soon!
